Mosaic Installation!

The “IHS” monogram is an abbreviation or shortening of the name of Jesus in Greek to the first three letters. Thus ?????? (I?sus or “Jesus”), is shortened to ??? (iota-eta-sigma). It is sometimes transliterated into Latin characters as IHS or ??C. The abbreviation is meant to reflect the Holiness of the Name of Jesus – something to be revered. The mosaic is located in the center of the church porch so as not to interfere with entering the church. Please avoid walking on the mosaic!
